We had a great time visiting La Palma. In three days time we saw really a lot. The first day we were waling for 6 hours through the forests. The second day we conquered the top of the island and on day three we climbed a (cold) volcano.
The nicest thing I did was one one night when we went searching for snails. This is a Spanish way of saying you are going for a walk, in the middle of the night, with beer, a flashlight and everything else you might need. During this walk we were really searching for snails, although the reason why we were searching for them remained unclear. I think it might be just for the honor of discovering a snail in the dark.
After walking around for a while we discovered a big tree that was beckoning us to investigate. It was a huge avocado tree, full of big avocado’s. Jummie jummie! We relieved the tree from a lot of big avocado’s and after some time it became clear that in my enthusiasm I had squashed all the nearby snails. Oh well.
